A major trove of art on paper is coming to light at the Hammer Museum

As part of the Hammer’s ongoing, $100-million renovation and expansion project at its Westwood building, a new Grunwald study-storage facility for works on paper is nearing completion, expected in early spring.

A 3,100-square-foot exhibition gallery dedicated to the paper medium was publicly unveiled on Sunday February 13, 2022 — a Hammer first. It launched with part one of a two-part survey of acquisitions from the last decade.

The gallery and the Grunwald are now front and center on the museum’s third floor, adjacent to the Hammer’s main galleries, rather than being tucked away. Call it a coming-out party for works on paper, as an exceptional collection sees a new light of day.
